Inactive User Deleter


When your project lives long time, site will get a lot of fake user’s registrations (usually made by spammers).
This tool will help you to clean this mess up. It can filter, select and delete packs of users.

See more information on – plugin home page.


  • Remember, my plugin will never delete user No 1 or users having role ‚administrator‘, and will do deleting operations only after message like that – <last warning>.
  • Filtering page
  • Trial users deleter tool
  • Miscellaneous page


To install this plugin:

  1. Download plugin
  2. Extract and copy plugins files to /wp-content/plugins/inactive-user-deleter directory
  3. Activate it (enter to /wp_admin, then choose plugins page, press activate plugin)
  4. Go to /wp-admin/users.php?page=inactive-user-deleter.php and follow instructions there.
  5. Enjoy, I hope 🙂

Hmm, it is useful but not working the way I think it is supposed to.5000 record(s) are shown, I click mark all, I click delete all marked users -> 985 users are being deleted. Still better than doing it without the plugin but why cant I delete all (~20k) users being found with the flags I selected, or at lest the 5000 I had marked?Anyhow, give it a try maybe it works for you.Also, it is free so big thanks to the creator.

The plugin is great.I installed it to delete all my inactive users (users who have not logged in over 12 months).But in order to find those users I have to install the plugin WP Last Login.But this plugin only counts all logins after the day of the installation.So it does not really make sense to find the „sleeping Users“.Is there another, better way to find all the inactive users?Thanks for your help.

This plugin is great, it does what is expected of it. All features are 100% working.

No filters work with my WP and you dont have to show all 16k users on the confirmation page. As well would be cool to delete all 16k at once, but the plugin cant delete more than 2.8k at once… But thx, took me just 10 mins to remove 16k.
